This is a trivial one but it’s worth putting the solution out there as scrolling up, down, left and right when working on a remote machine for hours becomes beyond annoying.
I spend a lot of my time working on remote machines on various things for my clients. In the last week or so I’ve experienced an annoyance with Remote Desktop in Windows 7. It’s started to lose full screen mode, you’re then presented with a scrollable view of the remote desktop session. I tried Alt + Enter (I loved doing that with DOS prompts on Windows 98). The Microsoft help says: press Ctrl + Alt + Break, that didn’t work! Here’s how you force it back into full screen view:
1. Open Remote Desktop Connection, make sure the connection you want in full screen mode is selected:
2. Click the ‘Options’ button, you’ll then be presented with the following:
3. Slide the ‘slider’ all the way to the right, it’ll say ‘Full screen’ below the slider. That’s it you’ve done it!
